Six Sentence Sunday #12

Today is the six-sentence finale to ‘Running Into Rodger’, a scene from my WIP, a contemporary romance tentatively titled Swashbuckler. Thank you for the comments–they make my day!

Rachel had seen that smile before, a thousand times on film, a few times directed at her. As she watched, unable to tear her eyes away from the scene, Rodger lifted a deliberate hand and caressed the visible flesh above his companion’s low cut dress. “Never,” was all he said-he turned his head slightly to look back at Rachel and she gasped as she recognized the unmasked anger in his eyes meant for only her to see.

“See you later, Rachel,” he said to her.

“Not likely,” she sputtered. Yanking her self-respect up by the scruff, Rachel stormed past Rodger and out the door into the cooling, familiar arms of loneliness.
